Next year’s Discovery Trail Challenge, a walk along the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’s long-distance route, will take place on Saturday 11th July and will raise funds for Living Options Devon.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, this registered charity runs the Countryside Mobility scheme that provides the ‘Tramper’ (all terrain scooter) for use by people with limited mobility, enabling them to enjoy the Tamar Trails. The group also offers a wide range of services and projects that support people with disabilities across Devon.
Diana Crump, CEO, Living Options said, “We are really thrilled to hear that we have been nominated as the Charity of Choice by the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail Challenge. The funds raised will make a huge difference to the lives of disabled people across the South West and we would like to thank everyone who is planning to take part.”
The Discovery Trail Challenge, now in its third year, and this year will be a 15-mile walk finishing at the Tamar Trails Centre.
Along both routes there will be refreshment stops, First Aid stations and transport at the end, to take walkers back to the Tamerton Foliot after the walk.
Becki Lumbis, Education & Community Resource Officer for the Tamar Valley AONB, says, “The Discovery Trail is one of the most varied and rewarding routes to walk in the South West. Many people enjoy walking sections of the Trail, but the full route can seem daunting if venturing out alone. This organised walk offers people the chance to walk the whole Trail, knowing that there is help or refreshment close by.”
The cost to sign up for the Discovery Trail Challenge is £20, but the Tamar Valley AONB team are offering an early-bird special of just £15 for those signing-up before 28th February.
